Right click on your speaker icon on the bottom right of your machine, select playback devices, then re-select your normal computer speakers. You may have to then restart your machine

HDMI out disabled?

If you have reformatted the hdd there will be no drivers. What I would have done is rebooted the laptop or gone back in time with restore point. Shame.

The monitor shows the sound is on but I don't hear

On what, your oven or is this a laptop or PC, a laptop adjust the sound settings, on a monitor, you need a HDMI cable to get sound from a monitor. And a PC that has onboard HDMI or a graph card that has HDMI.

I cant find the hdmi icon in sounds

Hello walchell,
Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!
To answer your question: HDMI Audio Output is part of your Digital Output package. Try turning up the Digital Output.If you are not hearing sound to your TV from your PC or DVR while connected to the HDMI cable, it is likely that you have purchased a cheaper HDMI cable that only provides video out. A high quality HDMI cable cost close to $35.00 for both outputs.
Have a great day!

I have a Gateway T-6330u and want to connect it to the TV to watch a movie, but I don't know how to do this. I searched the web and found I may need a HDMI cable, but I don't know if there are...

If your TV has a VGA input or the laptop and TV have HDMI run the cable over choose the correct input on the TV "pc or hdmi" my asus auto detects the hdmi stream you may have to right click on the desktop go into video setting and choose the TV.

Gateway model lp2417 i don get sound, but i know it has it because when you do anything on the "on screen menu" it has sound and you can adjust the volume for that

On the LP2417, there are no real speakers. You'll notice on the Advanced menu that Audio is disabled. There is an optional soundbar for that monitor that has HDMI passthrough, but I may be discontinued.

I hook my computer up to my lc195sl9 via hdmi and i get great picture but no sound on the monitor. what can i do to get sound.

HDMI only gives you great video but no sound. I can't find a manual for it but basically you need to hook up an RCA jack from the ouput on your sound card to the input onto your monitor. At that point you will have sound. Just be sure to go into your setting on your monitor and turn up the souund volume.

HDMI for laptop Compaq no sound

Hello ahmselem,

There are a couple of things to try.
  1. Open up your sound display on your laptop, and make sure that the computer recognizes the HDMI port out. If your laptop came with the port, then your computer would recognize that the port is there only if you have the correct drivers installed on the laptop. You can check that in your control panel/system/hardware devices. Look for Ports and make sure that their is no triangle with an ! in it.
  2. If your computer is set correctly, then you need to make sure that your TV is set correctly. Sometimes (I'm not a TV Expert) the TV need to be configured to each port. Especially if your using a receiver. So if your TV is on the correct input channel, look at the TV's options for audio, and make sure it recongnizes that port as HDMI.
  3. To test to see if the HDMI cable is bad, take a single multi audio plug and place it into the Headset plug on the laptop, and put the other side, which should be either a red and white plug, or compoment audio plugs, and plug those into another port completely, and switch the TV over to that port, to see if you here sound.
  4. If all those fail, then test the outbound port on the laptop, by pluging the HDMI into your DVD player (if you have one) and it will pass the sound through to the TV.
  5. Without knowing your TV, and coupled with my TV lack of knowledge, I'd also suggest reading through the TV manual throughly to see if it's not some simple switch that needs to be flipped.

Good Luck
